The stop sign is a message to the Eagles players to stop the mighty Florida Gators this Friday in a NCAA Sweet 16 battle. As a 16-year-old institution with … Continue reading »
BEST OF MAXIM
A artisan chocolate company in Fort Meyers has created high-heels made entirely out of chocolate in honor of Florida Gulf Coast University's remarkable run.
FOURTH MEAL MAGIC
Andy Enfield's first date with his supermodel wife Amanda Marcum was at Taco Bell, now the fast-food chain wants to celebrate with FGCU's coach.
GOTTA SUPPORT THE TEAM
You knew this was coming. I am surprised someone hasn’t gotten a Tattoo of the coaches’ Maxim model wife. People are breaking their ankles, hoping on the FGCU bandwagon. If they lose, I wonder how quickly their story will disappear and people jump to the new bandwagon. We shall see, if they beat Florida the drum beat and tattoos will only become louder. They are playing with...
Maybe its their underachieving nature and lack of flashy offense.
Maybe its because of the quality and margin of their wins.
Maybe theyve been looked over because of the down nature of their conference this season. Or, maybe, people arent convinced they have the talent to advance any further than this weekend.
Whatever the reason, Billy Donovan and his Florida Gators are not...
The Florida Gulf Coast Eagles will be the big story for ESPN this week. We will see head coach Andy Enfield answer questions about his house being on the market and that gorgeous wife he took out to Taco Bell. We learn more about just who Sherwood Brown, Brett Comer and Chase Fieler are as we will see countless shots of beautiful shell-lined beaches. This is what happens when a school...
Yes, Florida Gulf Coast University is the team we all consider as Cinderella for this NCAA Tournament, and rightly so. You would think that the LaSalle Explorers may feel like Jan Brady, constantly wondering why everyone is talking about Marcia, Marcia, Marcia. If they where to cry about all the attention that FGCU is getting, it would be rightfully so, I mean c’mon, this is their...
On Friday night, Florida will play Florida Gulf Coast in the Sweet 16 in Cowboys Stadium. Assuming the Gators play well, all signs point to them ending FGCU's run in the NCAA Tournament and moving one step closer to the Final Four.

Florida basketball head coach Billy Donovan opted to keep his team in Texas this week rather than travel back and forth to Gainesville . It's a different approach than that of Florida Gulf Coast University Coach Andy Enfield used as his team did travel back home to Ft Myers for a day or two and then to the Dallas area. Donovan talked about that and the match up to the media.

It's a battle of the sunshine state held in Texas as the #15 seed Florida Gulf Coast University Eagles (FGCU) play the more well known #3 Florida Gators.
The #15 FGCU Eagles (26-10, 13-5 A-Sun), the definite Cinderella story of the tournament, beat the #2 Georgetown Hoyas 78-68 in the second round of...
Dave Balza would like to dispel two statements.
Both are correct in terms of the letter of the law. But both are still a bit off, both taken a smidge out of context.
You'll have heard the first if you've watched even a few minutes of March Madness this year, especially if those minutes have been of the frenetic, underdog, blue and green variety.
In fact, if you've...
FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) -- Sherwood Brown only wanted a bagel.
The Florida Gulf Coast star walked into a restaurant on campus Monday and was quickly surrounded. People wanted autographs. People wanted photos. People just wanted to yell words of encouragement.
A school that opened a mere 16 years ago finds itself front-and-center in March Madness, one of only 16 college basketball...
ARLINGTON, Texas The understatement of the NCAA Tournament was issued by Florida Gulf Coast coach Andy Enfield on Thursday:
"Well, things have certainly changed in a week."
Enfield and his team have gone from obscurity to history-making. After knocking off Georgetown and San Diego State last week, Florida Gulf Coast is the first No. 15 seed to advance to the Sweet Sixteen...
Florida Gulf Coast was the breakout star of the weekend, alley-ooping its way on to the national stage to capture everyone's attention. You probably watched the Eagles crash the round of 16 like everyone else. Well, there were 63 other teams playing last weekend, too.
La Salle broke through as well. Bluebloods such as Duke and Michigan State were big winners as well. So the...
